Knife block in countertop? - How was this created? Is the dishwasher pulled away from the wall, or is there space behind for the knives? One long slit?

There was enough space to accommodate knives with dishwasher flush to wall. The carpenter cut a slit in the boards for knives.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A built-in cutting board has slots for knives, while vintage flower frogs sit on the windowsill — everything falls into Farley's method of practical and pretty displays. Old-fashioned materials — subway tile, marble, butcher block and zinc — honor the cottages' original kitchens.
Another option for keeping knives close at hand but out of children’s reach is a built-in countertop knife block. For this installation the carpenter cut slits in the wooden countertop behind the dishwasher. This low-tech setup works because the blades are completely encased, preventing hands from tangling with the blades from below.
